Getting to Know Pete Stemkowski

Mark Malinowski at The Hockey News recently spoke with former Ranger Pete Stemkowski.

Stemkowski played with the Rangers from 1970-77 scoring 113 goals.

Stemkowski's most memorable goal:

"Triple overtime goal (Stanley Cup semifinal Game 6 with New York in Chicago). Something that people still bring up today. We played ‘til about midnight. Chicago was really killing us – hitting goalposts, crossbars. Then around midnight I came in and picked the corner on Tony Esposito and the game was over. It's a thrill for me because people still bring it up today. People remember where they were, listening on a transistor radio, young kids in grammar school. One was stuck in an elevator. One guy was on his way to the hospital, his wife was giving birth that particular night. People always bring it up, it's nice."
